Dear Mr. Tran,

I am very interested in the Art Director position posted in the May issue of Juxtapose magazine. Having graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago as a Graphic Design major and an Art minor, I believe I have the appropriate preparation and training for the responsibilities that this job entails. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement.)

During my second year in SAIC, I was recommended to the Art Organization by one of my art teachers for the position of T-shirt Designer. This position came about as they were embarking on a project, which held the purpose of emphasizing the importance of art in education. With a passion for the cause and with a love for art, I gladly accepted the position. My t-shirt turned out to be a success. The funds that were raised were put toward the art department and the goal of spreading the word to the student body was achieved. (Describe your past experience in the field of Art. It is a plus to mention any recommendations you received as result of your work and artistic personality.)

The emotions that were provoked with the t-shirt, the message it communicated to its viewers, and the artistry of the design itself are what landed me my first job as an artist for Cool Jeans’ advertising department. After 5 years of being an assistant, I have gained the communication and management skills, as well as built upon my creativity, which serve as adequate preparation to take on the position as an Art Director. (Build upon your experience as you explain what skills you gained due to your involvement. Explain why you are well qualified for this position.)

I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. My résumé is attached. I look forward to scheduling an interview where I can talk more about my qualifications and show you my portfolio. (Express gratitude for their time.)
